Review: Wicked in Your Arms by Sophie Jordan
To say Sophie Jordan is my hero is an understatement. She gets to write a highly successful YA paranormal romance trilogy, sexy historical romance books, and paranormal romance books (wowza!). Now why is she my hero? Because what goes on in that head of hers makes me blush and I like it!!
from goodreads: For fiercely independent Grier Hadley, being the illegitimate daughter of one of London’s most unsavory characters has only one advantage: an enormous, ill-gotten dowry.
Prince Sevastian Maksimi knows where his duty lies: he must find a well-bred young lady—one with a considerable fortune to her name—wed her promptly, and get to the business of producing an heir.
The last thing Grier needs is some unattainable prince curling her toes with his smoldering glances and wicked suggestions. As far as Sev is concerned, she lacks the breeding to become a princess. And yet one kiss from this arresting female is all it takes for him to realize that anyone else in his arms would be unthinkable . . .
my thoughts: While I haven’t read many historical romances, I have to say I really enjoyed this one. The beginning seemed to go on a little too long with the differences between Grier and the Prince. However, I liked the story once it started taking off and I was hooked.
Grier possessed some serious spunk. I don’t like when the women in the story are doormats and boring. I like an exciting personality and that’s what Jordan gives us.
Holy hellfire (I love that saying), the ending was worth waiting for and boy did I read that quickly. I couldn’t get enough. Actually, I wish the ending had been longer with more information about the Princes cousin, Malcolm. However, if she had given us too much more, maybe it wouldn’t have been so believable.
What does one want in reviews of historical romances? Yes, it was historical and man-oh-man was it romantic. I’m still giddy over it and feel like a schoolgirl who needs to be scolded for peeking in the boy’s locker room. Not that I’ve ever done that… hmmmm…
Wicked in Your Arms was a fun and fantastic reads and has spawned me to make a few purchases on my Kindle all under the heading “historical romance.” It’s taken me too long to get here and I’m not going away yet (take that Stacy!!).
I give Wicked in Your Arms 4 STACKS
